I keep mine in the fridge, which makes them even more refreshing in cooling yer peepers during the hayfever season. Regards...

    Recent problem with walking boots

    Hi, Sounds like you may be suffering from plantar fasciitis, a painful condition I first experienced after a round of golf, wearing, would you believe, Footjoys! Inner soles with arch supports relieved it for me, which I bought from Boot's for around 20 to 25 quid. Had them in two or three...

    The SongFinder

    Has anyone tried The SongFinder - a hearing aid for those of us with high-frequency hearing loss, who cannot hear much in the way of bird song. It works by lowering the frequency range of the bird's call/song to a frequency within our range. If so, how severe is your normal hearing and how...

    Just ordered the same lens from Kerso - 4450 plus 60 P&P. Had great service from him before and wouldn't hesitate to use him again. I'd recommend him to anyone.

    Red Dots

    Also, would the green-dot be more visible than the red-dot? Roger Not if, like me, you suffer from one of the commonest (I believe) forms of colour-blindness, and that is red-green blind. Neil

    Nikon after-sales service

    Must sing Nikon UK's praises for their after-sales service. On Tuesday, I rang their depot in Surrey for replacement rubber eyecups for my 8x32 SE CF binos, which had split where they fold down. They arrived on my doorstep in N E Lincs the next day - no charge for the parts or postage! Beat...
